Tri-ing for Children’s
Total Time = 1h 30m 23s
Overall Rank = 168/
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 11/40
Pre-race routine:

Slept at my aunts so we were only 5 min away from the race. Luck for us coming in from the west so we were not stuck in the parking line(sorry someone dropped the ball on that one!) Talked with a bunch of donks and some of my tri club members from the Y. Ate a fiber bar and had 2 cups coffee, 1/2 banana, drank a muscle milk and some water. Later had a gel about 1/2 hour before the start of my wave.
Event warmup:

Did a few running drills and ran about 1/2 mile jumped into the water and swam a bit.
  • 10m 11s
  • 440 yards
  • 02m 19s / 100 yards

started out too far on the outside and never made it into the group to catch any draft. Although I will say this was my best sighting in an OWS.
What would you do differently?:

start more in the inside.
Transition 1
  • 02m 46s

better then last year but still need to work on this!
What would you do differently?:

more practice!
  • 48m 42s
  • 15 miles
  • 18.48 mile/hr

I pushed myself a little more on the bike then usual. I stayed down in aero for most of the ride which is a first for me! Felt good around the turns. Toes still went numb. Need to get that checked.
What would you do differently?:

More time in the saddle!
Transition 2
  • 01m 52s

toes were numb so took a bit to get my shoes on but still very happy with this time!
What would you do differently?:

continue practicing transitions, figure out why the toes go numb on the ride.
  • 26m 54s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 39s  min/mile

run was very flat, couldn't feel the toes for the whole run, making pushing off hard to do. Never felt like I opened up but am happy with the time. Would have like to see a water station at the turn around. First time I didn't have my fuel belt and I could have used some water.
What would you do differently?:

keep the fuel belt. Figure out why the toes go numb, do more bricks.
Post race
Warm down:

walked around with hubby, kids, Y tri-club members and donks. Got in line for food but wasn't ready for a sandwich would have like to have some fruit. came back later and had a ham/turkey wrap (ran out of buns) Also missed out on the cookies! BUT made up for it with the beer!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Training the last month has been less then stellar. Just couldn't find my mojo lately but am happy with my race and PR'd by almost 2 min!

Event comments:

Love the race itself very nice lake, good course and the peeps are the best but this year seemed less organized. The parking was a mess, I talked with our lifeguards(they were from my Y) said the needed more out there, know the bike had to be changed but HWY 67 was not fun to ride on! Needed water at the turn around of the run. With all that said I will be back next year as will my kids! We still had a blast!

You did awesome out there!!  And ha!! I told you that you looked good on the run! Your body was just lying to you. 

Your kids are also fantastic Sherpas... tell them thanks for carrying my shoes!  I saw your daughter right when I finished and she goes (with this little smirk) "oh, well hello!"  Very cute.

Great job Kim.  I get that numb feeling too.  I loosened my straps on my shoes and that seemed to do the trick. See you soon.
